2nd Federal Court Blocks Trump From Rescinding DACA

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that the Justice Department likely flouted the law in abruptly rescinding an Obama-era program that afforded qualifying young immigrants with certain protections. "Nothing in the Constitution or the Immigration and Nationality Act requires immigration authorities to grant deferred action or work authorization to individuals without lawful immigration status". The federal court judge said the White House could potentially repeal DACA, but that the evidence it provided in the case was "legally inadequate" to prove the program's unconstitutionality.

In a meeting with sheriffs at the White House, Trump continued to frame the debate in a way that depicts numerous illegal immigrants seeking to enter the U.S.as risky criminals.

Garaufis said the decision to end the program appeared to rest exclusively on a legal conclusion that the program was unconstitutional and violated the APA and the Immigration and Nationality Act.

But it will also end the popular "Green Card lottery", a 28-year-old program to diversify immigrant arrivals, and sharply limit family-based immigration.

Today's federal court ruling is a victory for the over 42,000 New York Dreamers and more than 700,000 Dreamers across the country.

Although the latest order doesn't go beyond the nationwide injunction issued by the judge in California last month, it gives the challengers more fuel as the Justice Department - which has already asked the US Supreme Court to take up the California decision - digs in for a fight. "They never should have shut down the government over DACA".

The program's March 5 expiration date is not set in concrete, however - a San Francisco judge's injunction has at least temporarily blocked removal of DACA protections ordered by Trump late previous year.

"Defendants indisputably can end the DACA program", the judge wrote in Tuesday's opinion.

Further outbreaks of rain and drizzle in the south and east will occur through the course of the day, turning heavy at times . Temperatures will stay between 2°C and 3°C for most of the day, according to Met Office forecast.

Trump's refusal to consider other bills, at least in advance of something passing, could be a death knell for anything the Senate passes if he does not encourage the House to take it up.

Alsup found the plaintiffs plausibly alleged that "racial animus towards Mexicans and Latinos was a motivating factor" in nixing DACA.

The two court rulings allow for DACA to temporarily remain in force, allowing programme recipients to submit renewal applications.

The most recent decision reinforces the case against the elimination of DACA, djio Tumlin, on the eve of the decision that the Supreme Court of the Nation must make this Friday in an appeal that the government made after the January decision.
